NEWCASTLE Jets yesterday unveiled their new marquee player, striker Edmundo Zura, and the A-League champions are hoping it won't be long before he produces his Spiderman mask.

 

Just 48 hours after the Jets signed Danish national squad member Jesper Hakansson, an Ecuadorean national player has arrived in town to boost the club's chances of winning back-to-back championships.

 

Zura dons a Spiderman wrestling mask when he scores.

 

He says it's a tribute to a former national team player Otilino Tenorio (nickname Spiderman) who was killed in a car accident.

 

In the prime of his career, ambitious Zura, 25, said he wanted to experience a new lifestyle and planned to make the most of his one-year loan deal from Imbabura.

 

Most would have thought the Jets would be reluctant to take a chance with South Americans again after last year's disaster with unfit Brazilian striker Mario Jardel.

 

Zura is nine years younger, naturally fitter and mobile and played for Ecuador earlier this year. He will have to pass a medical on Monday and needs to have his tourist visa transferred to a sporting visa before he can play in the A-League.

 

"We are getting that done as quickly as possible," Jets CEO John Tsatsimas said yesterday.

 

Former Glasgow Rangers and Scottish international Charlie Miller yesterday signed a two-year deal with Queens- land Roar.

I read this in the paper this morning, and nearly choked on my weetbix what a strange coincidence.

 

Seems like their are a few spiderman vigilante's running around like in the Batman movie!

 

And Newcastle as well, and in the same transfer window!!!

"Disaster" is a generous description - the player who turned up in Newcastle, Australia wasn't the same one who won European Golden Boot more than once...
